Had trouble last year with dragging bumper over speed bumps or my garage.I needed to be able to crawl over things and then go back to my set ride height.
Stance air cups to lift up front when needed.Compessor and air tank fit in trunk.
Also they are testing something for the rear of the car.

I posted this in DIY section but thought I would put in with build.This was an adventure.Fog light hooked up as factory.Change stalk on column. Used Canadian stalk so control on correct side.Dash light not there.Need to solder in led.Put 10 amp fuses in blank spots.
